Matomo not ignoring ignore link

Hello. When I conduct modifications to our websites that hosts Matomo every interaction is included in the log results of Matomo. Then in the visitor logs, clicking on “ignore” only ignores that one instance and clicking on other ignores for the same IP address gives a message that that ip is already ignored, yet it still shows up in the tracking logs. How do I permanent ignore our ip address so it won’t show up in logs? Thank you.
